We don't have much evidence but what little we have suggests that the organic armour worn by Greek hoplites was made from hide, not linen. Most of the references to linen armour in their texts talk about foreigners wearing it, not Greeks.
Compact Castles gives the gamer an instant portfolio of genuine, real-world castle floorplans to use in any historical, low-tech, or fantasy game setting.
